WhatsApp is making moves to regain all its users, which it has lost in the past years due to privacy and security. With the latest updates, the company is taking steps to positively increase the user experience, especially in the field of privacy. A new update that further enhances the platform's user experience was released to the app, which currently has over two billion active users.
WhatsApp's new updates focus on group chats
Communities feature, which debuted a year ago, is the primary focus of the latest update. A new tool in the update gives group administrators more control over group privacy and lets them choose who can join their group. With the new updates the controls you have over Communities will be more accessiable. In addition, the update makes it easier for administrators to control who can join their group via the invite link or by making it joinable in a community. The update also includes a feature that lets users search a contact's name to quickly see groups that share common interests.
Over the next week, the brand-new features will begin to be made available worldwide. WhatsApp has suggested that additional tools may be made available to members and administrators alike to enhance the group experience.
